Requiem for losses

Silence must be the last song of sanity
As wishes and dreams often go missing
True hearts ride the crest tireless
Hard flights, on sometimes broken wings

Some fly true, they carry their stories high
On fragile wings, that has never known rest
Solo in essence, yet they lead from the borders
To horizons beyond, far ahead of time

They are the loaners, to the winds of change
The pavers of those unfamiliar longings 
Their presence linger, as gentle reminders
Of places yet to be reached by the flock

Birds of passage, they have no true homes
They are seen, by those who need them most
When their work is done, their plumage bloodied
Broken and scattered, they are always the hunted…

    Beautiful metaphor. The first line is powerful and true: "Silence must be the last song of sanity"
